Tracy L. Rankin, PhD, MPH, Deputy Director for Clinical Sciences, Division of Kidney, Urologic, and Hematologic Diseases, NIDDK
As director of Career Development and Training for Kidney and Urologic Diseases, I oversee a portfolio that includes Career Development Awards (Ks) and Institutional Research Service (T32) awards in urology. These awards support early training in both basic and clinical research related to kidney and benign urologic diseases. They help clinicians and scientists who are pursuing academic careers make the transition to independence. I also manage the Developmental Grant Program (R03), which supports awardees as they begin their independent research programs.
I manage research studies under the Diabetic Urologic Disease and Urologic Endocrinology programs. As such, I am responsible for overseeing basic research on the urologic complications of diabetes and the molecular endocrinology of the lower urinary tract. I also serve as the Deputy Director of Clinical Sciences in the Division with management responsibilities of clinical study administration in the Division.
